A Classroom Innovation
What is TED-Ed?
TED-Ed is one of the best choice to make the flipped classroom option look possible.
TED-Ed is a website featuring a curated series of educational videos on a huge variety of subjects. From the folks at TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design), whose TED talks have featured some of the world's brightest minds, TED-Ed is a place where kids can get some of that same inspiration.
Videos are primarily geared toward a high-school audience, but motivated middle-schoolers might enjoy a lot of the offerings as well. Along with all of the free video content, the site allows teachers to take any educational video, not just TED's, and easily use it to create a customized lesson.
TED-Ed has thousands of lessons that you can customize with your own questions and resources. Use these materials to supplement your own lessons, to help students prepare for tests, and to let accelerated students branch out.
